Template:MssAu

Holograph manuscript, n.d.

Usage

3 variables

  • variable 1: first 2 numbers of a four-digit year. This will place the work page in the categories of "Composers' holographs from the ##00s" and "Manuscripts from the ##00s."
  • variable 2: second 2 numbers of a four-digit year. Input a value here if the date is on the manuscript as it will suppress the "n.d.(ca.)" from the template's output.
  • variable 3: second 2 numbers of a four-digit year. Input a value here to treat the date as an estimate as it will keep the "n.d.(ca.)" in the template's output. Can also be used to set a date range as shown below.

NOTE: inputting no variables will result in the template placing the work page in the category of "Composers' holographs from the 00s" and "Manuscripts from the 00s" which should be avoided.

Examples

{{MssAu}} = Holograph manuscript, n.d.
{{MssAu|17|15}} = Holograph manuscript, 1715*
{{MssAu|17||15}} = Holograph manuscript, n.d.(ca.1715)
{{MssAu|17||00s}} = Holograph manuscript, n.d.(ca.1700s)
{{MssAu|17||05-25}} = Holograph manuscript, n.d.(ca.1705-25)

*This option should be used only when the composer has actually dated the holograph. Use the MssUA template for items where the date has been determined by external factors.
